Zody Office Chair

Zody is a story of firsts. It’s one of the first chairs ever to fully support two postures: sitting, and the in-between “perch” position that’s half sitting, half standing at a sit-to-stand desk. And it’s the first chair to satisfy the most stringent environmental standard: Cradle to Cradle Bronze® certification. In a nutshell, this is the most researched chair on the market. Ever.


Zody is designed to accommodate a sitting position and a “perch” position when your standing desk is raised. This optional adjustment supports the in-between posture that’s half sitting, half standing. But you don’t need a sit-to-stand desk to love this chair — it’s pure comfort both ways.

Built with over 20 years of independent field studies and knowledge, it’s the most researched chair on the market. The exclusive asymmetrical lumbar support mimics the anatomy of your spine and lets you fine-tune comfort on either side. Additional pelvic support rotates the pelvis forward to help maintain your spine’s natural curves as you sit.

And it’s not only good for your body. It’s good for the planet, too. This is the first chair ever to be Cradle to Cradle Bronze® certified — the most rigorous environmental standard for products that can be fully reused after their first life. It’s also GREENGUARD Gold® certified and independently tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals to help contribute to cleaner air in your home.

Content: Care
  • Vacuum your chair as needed.
  • For additional cleaning, use a solution of lukewarm water and mild detergent (about 10%). Gently apply in a circular motion, then rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth.

Choose from breathable mesh, our signature zero-waste digital knit, or top-grain leather. Mesh naturally regulates body temperature and beautifully filters light. Digital knit offers the coziness of your favorite sweater and the innovation of technology. Because each cut is engineered to exact dimensions, there’s no leftover material — and zero waste. Our smooth, full-grain leather is soft and luxe with a premium feel.

Dual Posture

This innovative option supports the in-between posture that’s half sitting, half standing when your sit-to-stand desk is raised.

Pelvic Asymmetrical Lumbar Support

This patented system lets you independently control comfort on either side of your back. You’ll feel more support through your lumbar and pelvic area to maintain your spine’s natural curves as you sit.

Forward Tilt

Angle the seat downward by 5° to support a forward-leaning posture.

Seat Height Adjustment

Adjust the seat up and down depending on your height.

Tilt Tension Control

Go from relaxed and reclined to sitting upright in seconds with a simple, easy-to-use crank.

4D Arms

Get full support for your neck and shoulders with arms that move in and out, up and down, side to side, and front to back.

Sit, Stand or Somewhere In Between

Zody is one of the first chairs (ever!) to offer a dual posture option. That means it ergonomically supports two positions: sitting down, and that in-between “perch” position that’s half sitting, half standing. (If you have a sit-to-stand desk, you know what we mean.)

Genuinely Sustainable

Zody is the first chair ever to be Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze under the newest qualifications. This is the most ambitious standard yet for making products that enable an equitable and sustainable future for people and the planet. Zody also satisfies the most stringent level of environmental standards from the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association.

GREENGUARD Gold® Certified

Zody is independently tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals to help contribute to cleaner air in your home. It’s considered the most stringent standard for ensuring products are low in VOC emissions, which can lead to healthier indoor environments. Short for volatile organic compounds, VOCs are chemicals emitted as gasses into the air. The most common exposure is in our homes.

Environmental Integrity

Our chairs are crafted with more than 90% recyclable materials. That means almost the entire thing can be broken down to be recycled — and they’re designed for easy disassembly, so recycling is hassle free. We don’t use PVC, heavy metals, or flame retardants to make our chairs.

Sustainable Comfort

Choose Zody upholstered in our Hobson fabric, and you’ll help make a difference. Made from 80% ocean-bound plastic and recycled polyester, this exclusive material is durable, modern, and soft to the touch. Each yard diverts 33 plastic bottles from entering our oceans.

Marikit Nakpil
Chair Just Fit

I have a Zody chair at the office which I had in quite a while and wanted an ergonomically good, reliable chair to use for work at home. Chair arrived and packaged well... I really like the chair. It just fit.

Thank you for your review Marikit - we are so glad to hear you're loving the Zody in all your workspaces!

As good as advertised!

Only been using it for a week, but hard to find any faults. Very comfortable even after sitting 4 or 5 hours.

Felzy, thank you for providing feedback on the Zody - we are so glad to hear it is bringing comfort to your workday!

Eric Chung
Great comfort and adjustability!

I needed a good reliable chair to sit on while I work from home. After just a day or two use of Zody, now I take my rest sitting on this chair and spend outside of my work time on Zody mostly. With multiple settings, it allows resting mode, concentration mode all while providing minimum comfortability. Great chair!

Eric, thank you so much for submitting a review! We are glad to hear that you're enjoying your new Zody!

Regina Geso

I am giving this chair 5 stars in spite of its shortcomings. I think the seat could be a little less firm and the arms should lock in place. I have had a problem with the dye in the black seat bleeding onto my clothing. I have contacted customer service twice and have not received a call back. I may have to return the chair for a full refund if the issue with the seat cannot be resolved.
In spite of the mentioned issues, I like the chair - it is sturdy and comfortable.

Regina, thank you providing your feedback! We are very sorry to hear about the color bleed issue you have experienced and will have someone from our Haworth Store support team reach out to you to further assist.

Scott Manhart
